Swish Education

Swish Dreams uses a “learner centered” philosophy.  It refers to environments that pay careful attention to the knowledge, skills, attitudes and beliefs that learners bring to the educational setting.  Swish Dreams integrates Math, Language Arts and Social Success principles with sports, which allows teachers to build on the conceptual and cultural knowledge that students bring with them to the classroom.
